It’s time for another Supporting Independent Businesses post! I love these posts, especially this time of year. I really think it’s important to buy Christmas presents from smaller, independent businesses as so much love, thought and care has been put into the items you buy for your loved ones (or even yourself!). Pick ‘n’ Melt is no exception.
I was lucky enough to receive the Standard Christmas Gift Set from Pick ‘n’ Melt, which contained –
1 x Pick ‘n’ Melt Wax Warmer
2 x Christmas Time Cube Melts
2 x Christmas Spice Cube Melts
2 x Robin Red Breast Cube Melts
2 x Cocoa & Log Fire Cube Melts
2 x Frankincense and Myrrh Cube Melts
2 x Mistletoe & Wine Cube Melts
2 x Festive Tree Cube Melts
2 x Snow Cube Melts
When I opened the parcel, I was instantly thrown into the Christmas spirit by the beautiful smells that hit me. Even my husband reminisced, talking about how the Cube Melts called ‘Snow’ reminded him of his childhood at Christmas time. Cube Melts are little wax cubes which you melt in a wax warmer, over a tealight. We were so excited to try out the different Cube Melts and had to argue our cases for which one to try first. Of course, my husband won and we went for ‘Snow’.
We have tried a few more since and they have all been delightful. Each one reminds you of different aspects of past Christmases, whether that be a Christmas fayre, opening presents around a real Christmas tree, the school Nativity play, walking around the town on Christmas Day after a big lunch or festive drinks around a fire.
The fun thing about Pick ‘n’ Melt (amongst many others) is that you can mix up your scents, we tried mixing ‘Christmas Time’ and ‘Mistletoe and Wine’ and it looked and smelt gorgeous!
If you visit the Pick ‘n’ Melt website, you will notice there are many brilliant options for buying your own scents and sets. They also make luxury candles, which are beautiful and available in 250 scents such as pink grapefruit, sweet pea, marshmallow and their blends such as strawberries and champagne.
The Standard Christmas Gift Set that I received, is an amazing £12.00. If you buy four of these, then you will only pay £9.00 for each set – a fantastic offer which works out at buy 3, get 1 free! There is also a Supreme version of this set which contains 32 bags of melts (16 different flavours) and costs £18.00. This will reduce to £13.50 if you buy four sets. Check out the Special Offers section of the website to find more set options.
You can also join the Pick ‘n’ Melt Party which is an exciting monthly subscription service. You pay £8.00 per month (£12 for supreme) and you will receive 20 bags of melts (30 with Supreme) and postage is free! You will have your own user account and there you will be able to manage which scents you receive. To find out more, click here.
I think you’ll agree when I say that these sets, candles and Cube Melt subscriptions are perfect gifts, especially at Christmas time. I could literally order all 250 candles as they all sound AMAZING!
